Sailings have again been cancelled by the Alaska Marine ferry system. Mechanical issue continue to plaque the MV Matanuska - this time, the issue is with the reduction gear system.

A drydock stay in the Ketchikan shipyard where the system can best be inspected is now scheduled.  It is hoped that the system, which is covered under warranty, can be repaired quickly so that the ferry can return to service at the start of March 

Aware of the travel needs in March, Alaska Marine is exploring options for alternative service in the event the ship is unable to return to service as planned.

Alaska Ferry To Be Pulled From Service

As a result of a vessel inspection showing that the M/V Malaspina needs about $16 million worth of repairs, she will be pulled from service in December and will be stored in Ketchican until a decision about her future can be made. 

As there isnít enough money in the Alaska ferry systemís budget to cover the repair costs, no long term decisions for the ferry have been made.   

DOT spokesperson Meadow Bailey says the current sailing schedule will not be impacted.
